Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics reports that AEW has had talks with DAZN about a media deal in the UK, where AEW currently airs on ITV. DAZN has worked with a variety of companies and even worked with WWE at one point. At this time, no deal has been made.

Thurston said: “AEW and DAZN have been discussing possibly being media partners. DAZN and AEW talked about potentially having a media deal in the United Kingdom; that has not come to fruition. I believe AEW and DAZN will continue to discuss various possibilities on how they could become media partners in other regions, maybe globally.

When it comes to AEW’s deal with ITV, he added: “About UK rights – AEW is still working, obviously, with ITV. UK fans will know very well that Dynamite and Rampage air on ITV on Tuesdays and Fridays. They’ve been bumped up to an earlier, better time slot lately. Tony Khan was tweeting about this earlier this week as well. I’m assured that AEW is very happy with ITV as their TV partner in the United Kingdom.
